    Default TIG welding help!

    Hello, I'm 16 years old and I'm a welder at my school. I've always been the one to fabricate things for everyone in my class. I've been doing a lot of tig welding lately but I'm finding my beads aren't real big. There really thin. I was wondering what I can do to beef them up. Make a bigger pool and dab the filler rod in more often? I'm relatively new to tig welding so don't beat me up too bad. I mainly do a lot of wire welding.

    there are some things you can do to make bigger welds. But it still will not compare to mig welding. You can dip more rod, or get bigger rod. But even with bigger rod it still wont compare to mig welding.

    For good pointers on welding go to weldingtips&tricks.com. Weld size should match what you are welding, check charts for tungsten size, amps and filler size(same as tungsten)

    Lets start off with the basics. What size, model machine are you using. How thick is the material?
